The implication is that it has created the intellectual negligence of the conflicts that exist amongst the practitioners of other religions. This work is a study on the conflict between Christians and the members of the Ogo cult in Afikpo, South-eastern Nigeria. It is centred on the theory of clash of civilizations.

It therefore recommended multi-dimensional road map to sustainable peace.
